About The Project

OctoFarm was built to fill a need that anyone with multiple 3D printers with Octoprint will have run into. How do I manage multiple printers from one place? That's where OctoFarm steps in, add your OctoPrint instances to the system and it will scan and keep you up to date on the status of your printers. Dashboard View

Getting Started

To get a local copy up and running follow these simple steps.

OctoPrint 1.4.1+

Currently there are issues with using the Global API Key to connect to these instances of OctoPrint. Please use the first user you setup on OctoPrint and a generated Application / User API key from this user to connect. I will be updating OctoFarm to work better with all permission sets eventually but for now this will allow a connection to be established.


Confirmed working on: Linux (Ubuntu, Debian), RaspberryPi (Rasbian), Windows 10. Should also work on but not tested: MacOS, anything else nodejs will run on.

Note: Raspberry Pi's Raspbian OS doesn't officially support running MongoDB yet (MongoDB requires a 64bit kernel, whereas Raspbian's is 32bit), so in that case, you'll need an external database running on some other machine or VM.

Supported Browsers

All browsers should now be supported in OctoFarm. Please log an issue if this is not the case.


On your OctoPrint instance

  • User Name -> User Settings
  • Copy the API Key some place easy to get to
  • Enabled the "Allow Cross Origin Resource Sharing (CORS)
  • Restart OctoPrint
  • Repeat for all OctoPrints that will be added to the Farm

See The WIKI for more detailed instructions than what's available below


All user documentation is now moving to Development documentation below.

Installation Development

  1. Clone the OctoFarm
git clone
  1. Install NPM packages
npm install
  1. Edit the /config/db.js file with your database.
module.exports = {
  MongoURI: "mongodb://"
//Example Local URL: "mongodb://"
//Example Remote URL: "mongodb+srv://"
  1. Install nodemon
npm install --save-dev nodemon
  1. Start the system
npm run dev
  • The developer version uses nodemon for live server reloading on changes. It will output all the logs to the console.
  • The developer version will skip some basic sanity checks, if your pages don't load right after server boot then it's because those sanity checks haven't finished.

Packaged Versions

These are planned but not available yet...


I am currently not accepting any contribution to the code. I started this project to teach myself nodejs and Javascript better. With my current plans I will have exhausted most learning opportunities by Version 1.2 and will be happy to take pull requests from people then. Thanks for understanding.
